Trivia

The film is far more "sexed-up" than the series ever was, from its title ("The Nude Bomb") to its leading lady (famous for appearing in the "Emmanuelle" series of softcore porn films) to the very raunchy dialogue to giving Maxwell Smart three love interests instead of one, and a plethora of both male and female nudity.

In the clone fight scene, the face of Max's stunt double is clearly seen in several shots. See more »

Quotes

Chief: We're really up against it, this time, 86. The fate of the entire world is in your hands.
Maxwell Smart: Oh no, not again. Well, ok this time, but next week I'm on vacation, Chief. If you get in trouble then, it's your ass.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits are based on Don Adams/Maxwell Smart's catch phrase "Would you believe...?" The words literally form the backdrop of the action; at one point "Would you believe a movie called 'The Nude Bomb' could receive a PG rating?" appears; and after Max inadvertently blows up the bad guy, the words "Would you believe a helluva explosion?" appear on screen.

More bawdy spy spoof than true Get Smart
6 August 1999 | by (Rochester, NY) – See all my reviews

Okay, I was 11 when I first saw The Nude Bomb -- it was on HBO, I taped it and watched it over and over and over and over again. A huge fan of Get Smart, yes, I was disappointed Don Adams was the only original from the series. But I do remember enjoying the film's opening - a spoof of the Bond-films, with women fawning over Smart as a hokey ballad played over the credits. And of course, Sylvia Kristel ... need I say more.
